Last week the Travel Girlchoir of Sister Cities Girlchoir had an amazing performance at one of the best musical venues in the city – World Cafe Live. As part of the Live Connections series, the girls had an opportunity to sing with renowned jazz singer Joanna Pascale before a packed house.
The concert opened with Joanna and jazz trio 3DIVAS performing a variety of songs written by women, each preceded by an interesting story. Joanna even dedicated one of the songs to the girls, as she was really moved by an interaction with them this fall. We all had a great time listening and relaxing on the balcony.
In the second half, our girls did one of their best performances of their repertoire, and then sung as backup for the original song, “Tree of Life” together with Joanna and the band.
It was a truly inspirational and wonderful experience for the girls and the staff!
